on Mar 17th, 2009Frédéric Chopin Berceuse Op. 57 in D flat major
Frédéric Chopin’s Berceuse Op. 57 is a lullaby in the form of variations in D-flat major.
At first the composer titled the work Variations but the title was altered for publication to the current Berceuse.
The music begins and ends in 6/8 time. ‘Berceuse’ literally means “cradle song”
